Overview

Following the success of its best-selling predecessors, the Fourth Edition of Harriette Pipes McAdoo's Black Families retains several now classic contributions while including updated versions of earlier chapters and many entirely new chapters. The goal through each revision of this core text has been to compile a book that focuses on positive dimensions of African American families. The book remains the most complete assessment of black families available in both depth and breadth of coverage. Cross-disciplinary in nature, the book boasts contributions from such fields as family studies, anthropology, education, psychology, social work, and public policy. Directions for future research are suggested at the end of each chapter, and references guide readers to more in-depth discussion of specific topics. Chapters are grouped into six parts covering history, theoretical conceptions, religion, child socialization, gender relations, and public policy. Black Families, Fourth Edition will interest students, scholars, and practitioners in African American Families, Black Families, and related courses in fields of African American and ethnic studies, human development and family studies, sociology, social work, and education.
